Hi Stephen,

thanks for your answer, helps a lot!

For armel I'd go for removal then, unless Mike has any other idea about it.

Hmm, ok. A small reason for doing it is, that there are some internal
32-bit dependencies in Wine. E.g. the mount manager does not work with
wine64 only (noted in https://bugs.debian.org/793879). And so on, this
pops up every now and then.
However, as long as we don't have WoW64, this might cause more trouble
than it solves. So indeed probably better leave it (and I'll let my
patch rot locally).
